U.S. Concrete's Precast Products Offer Strength Needed for Boardwalk Rebuild

U.S. Concrete's Precast Products Offer Strength Needed for Boardwalk Rebuild

EULESS, Texas, June 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Late last month, U.S. Concrete
Precast, a U.S. Concrete, Inc. (Nasdaq:USCR) company, began constructing a
portion of the 2,500 precast pieces that will serve as the base of the Long
Beach Island boardwalk in Long Beach, N.Y. The boardwalk, destroyed by
Hurricane Sandy in October of last year, is an overall rebuild estimated at
nearly $44.2 million.

The reconstruction will utilize precast concrete, a type of concrete that is
pre-manufactured off-site and then transported and installed on-site at a
later date. The concrete is less susceptible to storm damage than the
traditional wood planks used in the past and is built to withstand the high
velocity winds of hurricanes that commonly occur on east coast beaches. The
nostalgic feel of the boardwalk will be preserved by inlaying tropical wood
planks on top of the precast, on which visitors will then be able to walk.

"Precast will not only provide long-lasting strength and resistance to
hurricane-type storms, but also a resistance to the harsh salt water
environment. It will also provide longevity unmatched by wood," said General
Manager of U.S. Concrete Precast Marc Davis.

The product produced in the Middleburg plant will be transported to Long
Beach, NY for installation. A small piece of the 2.25 mile long boardwalk is
expected to open in July while the finished product is anticipated to be
completed in November.

"U.S. Concrete Precast is excited to be a part of this project and to
contribute to the Long Beach community by aiding in the restoration of the
boardwalk. The boardwalk is such an iconic symbol of this community and many
others along the eastern coastline. We couldn't be more excited to play a role
in bringing it back to its fullest potential," ended Davis.
